Fewer cars on road will help save lives

Anrai O Duileain seems to be blaming speeding policy rather than speeding motorists for road accidents (Letters, March 21).

He also appears to be of the opinion that we should have "discretionary" speed limits rather than mandatory ones. One hundred kilometres per hour is the 'upper limit' and not some arbitrary figure to be considered when it suits.

Speed, or more correctly speeding motorists, are the biggest killers on the roads. Worldwide, 1.3 million people die annually and more than 40 million are seriously injured.
